    Facilitator(s): Kim Piasecki, MS, LCPC & Kate Kelley, RN, MA, LCPC

    Imago teaches that relationship power-struggles are an opportunity for healing and growth and can establish a deeper connection for couples. When you learn how to move through conflict with compassion and empathy, disagreements in your relationship evolve into something deeper and more fulfilling.

    Based on the theory and exercises described in the NY Times Bestselling book by Harville Hendrix, Ph.D. and Helen LaKelly Hunt Ph.D, the Getting The Love You Want® Couples Workshop teaches you and your partner how to transform your relationship into a fulfilling partnership. It's a transformative journey that guides couples with practical tools and strategies to create satisfying and long-lasting relationships.

    You will be guided through exercises that explore the history of your relationships and how it influenced you to choose one another, and also look at the reasons you may struggle.

    The workshop is designed as an educational experience. It may be therapeutic in terms of healing, and may even be transformative, but it is not therapy or group therapy. You are welcome to share your experience with the group, but it is not required. Most exercises are done between you and your partner.

    DAYS/TIMES:

    Saturday 9:00am - 6:00pm

    Sunday 9:00am - 6:00pm

    More information:

    Included is a workbook for each participant and snacks throughout the weekend. Discounted hotel rooms available - check presenter website for more information.
